They differ from voltage-gated channels because they are always open to the passage of sodium and potassium ions across the membrane whereas voltage-gated channels open and close in response to specific changes in the membrane potential. 33 found that 50% DMSO was necessary to block muscle twitch in a frog sciatic nerve-gastrocnemius muscle preparation. 1). 30,34 See text for details. also found blocking of pain impulses by exposing the peripheral nerve to 5%–10% DMSO, a result that they concluded might be due to blockade of C-fibers.
